    At the resumed hearing of Hayward v Cammell Laird Shipbuilders Ltd (IT, 12.9.85) EOR4B, the tribunal holds that in implementing an award of equal pay for work of equal value, the term "pay" should be construed in accordance with the extended definition given to it by Article 119 of the Treaty of Rome and that, accordingly, equal pay means terms and conditions which considered as a whole are not less favourable.
